Everyday, pedestrians are injured as the result of negligent drivers. In Los Angeles especially, where traffic congestion is a significant problem and the use of automobiles is a necessary part of life, pedestrian traffic accidents occur more often than they should. If you or a loved one has been involved in a pedestrian accident of any kind, you need a skilled Los Angeles pedestrian accident lawyer to fight for your rights and ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
Pedestrian accidents can take on a variety of forms. There are accidents where all road conditions are ideal, yet negligent drivers fail to exercise necessary caution and consequently injure an innocent pedestrian. There are also accidents where road conditions are not ideal. In instances where poorly paved roads or faulty traffic signals or signs contribute to the cause of a pedestrian accident, the accident is still in part the result of a negligent driver, albeit not necessarily a reckless or impaired one. There are also instances where pedestrians are injured as the result of potentially hazardous conditions that are ultimately the responsibility of those who are responsible for maintaining and repairing said conditions but fail to do so. For example, if a pedestrian trips and is injured as the result of an uneven sidewalk, then the person responsible for maintaining that sidewalk is liable for damages awarded to the pedestrian.
Pedestrian & crosswalk accidents can result in personal injury or even death. Pedestrians who are injured can find themselves facing steep medical costs that may include physical therapy. In addition to those costs, an injured pedestrian may experience loss of work, which will significantly alter income and may lead to even greater debt presenting itself. In the event that pedestrian accidents lead to wrongful death, the family of the decedent will not only have to deal with the above mentioned financial burdens, but will also have to pay for funeral costs, and will have to somehow cope with the fact that any income the decedent would have contributed to the family household in the future will no longer be available, thus creating an even greater financial burden on the family.
